I have installed Ubuntu touch on my Galaxy Nexus, but i'm having trouble setting up a mobile broadband connection. My provider is Hollandsnieuwe, which is a virtual provider on the Dutch Vodafone network. My provider Hollandsnieuwe is not listed in /usr/share/mobile-broadband-provider-info/serviceproviders.xml, so i added the following entry:

<!-- Nehterlands-->
    <country code="nl">
                <name>hollandsnieuwe int.</name>
                        <network-id mcc="204" mnc="04"/>
                        <apn value="data.dataxs.mobi">
                                <plan type="postpaid">
                                <usage type=ïnternet">

At the Hollandsnieuwe page i found the following settings, which were working when i ran Android. Name: hollandsnieuwe int.
APN: data.dataxs.mobi
Proxy: empty
Port: empty
Username: empty
Password: empty
MCC: 204
MNC: 04
Verification type: PAP
APN type: internet

Both cellular data and data roaming are enabled. Sometimes the 3G icon lights up for a couple of seconds and it goes away again. nmcli c tells me that the available gsm connection has never been used. But i can't start it with nmcli con up id connectionname Instead it returns:

WARNING **: async_got_type: could not read properties for /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/ActiveConnection/38: Method "Get" with signature "ss" on interface "org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties" doesn't exist

I tried a prepaid sim card from another provider, which gave me 3G access instantly.
Any help is appreciated.
